Here is another tool, called DtdAnalyzer:

We've been using this internally, and recently put on GitHub to try to
put it in a form that might be more generally useful.  It's written in
Java, and converts a DTD into an XML (elements-and-attributes)
representation.  There are a few other scripts that build on top of
this XML representation, for example, to generate documentation and to
do diffs.  Those tools haven't been moved into this GitHub project
yet, but should be soon.
